Occasionally we like to post stats to show the AVSIM community how active and sizable it is. So, here are stats that are taken from 1 April through yesterday, 2 May. Number of people registered in the last month: The number to TOPICS created: The number of POSTS made in those topics: The top 10 forums in April: In the month of April, throughout all forums, there were over 1.3 million "reads" made. The top 10 forums represents a pretty good chunk of that number. It is nice to know that you are in good company and not alone!
With the upgrade of our forum and content software over night, we have introduced a new feature which we think will be a great addition to your use of the system. This is the ANSWERED function. What this does is provide the ORIGINAL topic poster (the OP) to decide which of the following answers to his question was the right answer. When that OP gets the right answer, he can annotate it as such for follow on readers to note. Mods and Admins can also designate messages as 'answered' and they can also deselect them as well. The next message following this one is an example of that function.
We are nearing the 2 Millionth posting on AVSIM. It seems appropriate that in our 15th year that the 2 millionth milestone is about to be reached. As of this writing, we are less than 8,000 message to go until that milestone is passed. Who will be the poster of the 2 millionth message? We don't know, but we have some great prizes waiting for the fortunate individual. Here's a short list: Free access to our secret forum; What FLIGHT means to me! A free subscription to our new file library's hourly updates via RSS! A free edition of FS2000 fresh from our Editor's desk. A free download from the AVSIM Store. Depending upon the quality of the 2 millionth post, we might even award you free Canadian Citizenship so that you can attend our Simmer's social in Victoria, British Columbia in October! Stayed tuned and keep those posts coming! You could be the winner of a number of great presents...
We are slowing turning on Topic Ratings for all forums. Since we have a couple of hundred forums, that may take us awhile. As of this writing, we have turned on ratings for AVSIM specific forums and all of the Microsoft forums. We're working our way down the list, and sooner or later all will be turned on. We have added a feature that allows you to open up the forum category, say MS FSX and in the list of topics, you will rating stars next to each topic. These stars represent your opinion of the topic and your rating of it using 1 through 5 starts, with 5 stars being best. The total numbers of stars displayed in gold are the average of every user's vote. You can only rate a topic once. There are no negative ratings, but a 1 star should be assumed to be "not good".
